1997 xk8 jaguar with 73000. that I recently purchased in very good condition. I've noticed a couple of issues, first one being that it vibrates a bit when I first start it up(only after sitting over night) and for the first few miles of driving. The other issue is that it has a slight pull to the right and left when driving and a squeak near the front end when you hit a bump. Are these issues normal for a car this age/mileage?Are any of these issues a major concern?

Hi i`m sal and i`llbe happy to answer your questions.
sounds like your car needs a tune up. a lot of times when a ignition wire gets old when cold creates allot of resistance and causes a misfire. as it warms up resistance goes down and corrects the problem.
the pulling to the left and to the right and the squeak sounds like you have a bad ball joint. if the ball joint is bad enough it will make the car wonder a lot. (pull to the right and left) this will be something you should have check for safety.
I hope this answers your questions and if you have any more questions let me know.
